Game ReviewThis game was a huge early-season test for the rapidly-improving Carlton - second versus third on the ladder, at Collingwood's home ground of Victoria Park.
After an even first quarter the Magpies had most of the play, but squandered their chances in front of goal and were narrowly beaten by a more efficient Carlton team. Percy Pitt kicked four goals at full-forward for the Blues, whose joy was compounded when the win knocked the 'pies from second to fourth.
At the end of this round Carlton were in 2nd spot on the ladder with a percentage of 87.4.
